Here is my 1/48 scale Aeroclub Meteor NF Mk.14 vacform, resin,
injection molded and white metal kit.
It is a true multi media kit!
The model builds up nicely with not much putty required. Actually,
the only area that I needed it was the wing to fuselage joint. The rest
just Tenax or Super Glue with zip kicker.
The instruction sheet gives you both written and picture breakdown.
I really like Aeroclub kits because they go together without much
fuss, and they give you what you need in detail parts.
I started by cutting out the vacform parts first. Go slowly so as to
not sand off to much. Note - I use sanding sticks as much as possible.
Buy the ones at the drug store they are cheaper and last longer and are
bigger. Go to the nail care section or, if your not that brave, have
your wife or girlfriend buy them for you.
trick for the instrument panel is to paint white dots at the instrument
location then use Reheat instrument decals and place on the proper
loocation (click the thumbnail to the right to view larger image).
This looks good and makes an easy job of it.
The rest of the kit was built per kit instructions.
You get the choice of two color schemes to in this kit.
used Testor Model Master paints for the British colors - British Dark
Green and Dark Sea Gray for the upper colors, and Medium Sea Gray for
I gloss coated the airframe then decaled the model. I used a little
decal setting solution on them and the decals settle down nicely. Panel
lines were highlighted then flat coated.
I am pleased that I now have the first in my collection of Meteors. I
also have a Mk. 8 by Aeroclub almost done - a little more sanding and it
is ready for paint!
